This weekend is my dads side of the family’s biennial family reunion. Being the musical family we are, we will be showcasing a “Broadway Bound” night on Saturday evening. This is the time we all get up and perform classic musical numbers, complete with choreography and props, for the whole family to enjoy.

Let me give you a little taste of what I will be performing with Landen and Janssen:

How can you not love being part of a family that is willing to do such weird and hilarious things together?

And if you think for a second that we won’t be waving around big feathered fans, you are wrong.



  1. I'm on campus so I didn't get to see the little video, but I'm sure it's hilarious. Aren't sisters the best?!

  2. Yay I'm so glad you're doing this after all!! Did you talk Philip into performing anything? 🙂 Is this family thing happening in Vegas?! I'll be there on Sunday 🙂 Let me know!!

  3. Brit Taufer says:

    Bahaha!! Please tell me that someone is going to be filming this so that you can post it on your blog once you've performed it!! So funny!

  4. Tara says:

    Ditto on Brit's comment.

  5. Camille says:

    Oh wow – the Gates family cracks me up! Of course, I can't laugh too hard – I'll be up there mumbling songs along with all the other embarrassed in-laws 🙂 Too funny! I can't wait to see the real thing!

    Hope you had a marvelous time. Pictures? Videos? 🙂

    I have that entire song memorized…does that make me ultra cool?
